    Am I able to pay for the kids price for character dining if I've had bariatric surgery and can only have a small amount of food?

    Hey there, Morgan!

    Welcome to planDisney, where Guests help Guests plan magical and memorable visits to Disney Destinations. I'm so excited to hear that you're considering a character dining experience during your next trip to the Disneyland Resort! There's nothing like enjoying a fabulous meal with fan-favorite Disney characters - it's a "must-do" for my family on every Disney vacation. Morgan, I'm happy to help you prepare for your upcoming journey to The Happiest Place on Earth!

    While experiences at different dining locations throughout the Disneyland Resort may vary, in general, Disney character dining experiences are priced by Guest age. The "adult" rate applies to Guests ages 10 or older, the "child" rate applies to Guests between ages 3-9, and children 2 and under eat for free! Morgan, I'm happy to inform you that no special arrangements are needed for Guests requiring meals of smaller portions. This is considered a common special dietary request that can be accommodated by the restaurant! When you arrive at the restaurant, I encourage you to notify your server of your condition and special dietary request. Also, since many of the character dining offerings at the Disneyland Resort are buffet-style, you'll likely be able to determine appropriate portion sizes on your own. Bon appétit!

    Morgan, with any character dining experience, you're in for a fun and flavorful time. Be sure to allow your party ample time to enjoy the entire meal and all of the fun character antics! This is a great opportunity to take photos with your favorite Disney characters, so keep your camera handy.

    I hope you've found this information helpful, Morgan! I'm wishing you many satisfying meals and an enchanting visit to The Happiest Place on Earth. If you have any additional planning questions, I hope you'll stop back by planDisney again in the future! We're here to help you enjoy every magical moment of your Disneyland Resort vacation.

    Warm wishes,
